Kgosietsile Ntlhe (born 21 February 1994) is a South African footballer who plays as a defender for English League Two club Barrow.

Club career

Born in Pretoria, Ntlhe joined Peterborough United in 2009 from Southside United and signed a two-year apprenticeship in the summer of 2010. He signed his first professional contract for the club in February 2011. In October 2011, Ntlhe joined Southern Premier side St Albans City on a one-month loan deal. He made his debut for the Saints in a 2–2 draw with Bedford Town. On 21 April 2012, Ntlhe made his professional debut for Posh, coming on as a half-time substitute for Lee Frecklington in a 2–2 draw with Watford. Following the club's relegation to League One in 2013, Nthle played regularly in the following two seasons. However, he only made eight appearances in 2015-16 and joined Stevenage on undisclosed terms at the end of that season.

After one season with Stevenage, Nthle was released in June 2017.

In July 2017, he joined Rochdale on a two-year contract. He was offered a new contract by Rochdale at the end of the 2018–19 season.

Instead, on 4 July 2019, Ntlhe signed for EFL League Two side Scunthorpe United on a one-year deal.

In September 2020 he signed for League Two newcomers Barrow.

International career

In May and June 2012, Ntlhe participated in the 2012 Cape Town International Challenge, an exhibition tournament open to players under 20 years of age. He played in all of South Africa's games, meeting Argentina, Nigeria and Ghana in the group stage before losing to Brazil in the semi-final on penalties after a 2–2 draw. South Africa finished third place in the competition, having beaten Japan on penalties in the third place playoff. In mid-August, Ntlhe was called up to the South African senior team for the first time to play two friendlies against Brazil and Mozambique. He made his international début on 12 October 2013 in a 1–1 draw against Morocco at the Adrar Stadium.
